many people have asked me - Why did you move to Dubai?
So why not answer
this and share my own experience with anyone who may have un interest.
way, the answer is simple - I just did what I felt was right to do, in my
life, at such time!
But to come to such decision - to take the step - and change your life 180 degree - was based on the
conviction to find a place where you can contribute and be appreciated
for your initiatives. Already when I first time arrived to Dubai, I did feel that this is the place where you have the freedom to create and do things on a global level.
which is, my home country,
is an advanced country, quite peaceful and a friendly country with an
multitude of cultures and a country which always has striven to make
the human rights and make the society transparent and give equal chances for anyone.
Such a statement is more a statement which fits in if you are a
"Normal" person - someone who follows the flow - but
being an entrepreneur - the rules are different and the society haven't yet
learned on how to deal with those, who may are "different".
may already have read, I have done a lot in my life and always tried to
do good for my country and for the community - by trying to do good
business and at the same time bring in social values and help the once
who need help, to get it right. Such qualities are often facing a lot of skeptical
comments, and most of the time you need to fight for doing
something which is good. The bureaucratic part of the society, seams to
think that they have a monopole on doing things they may think are good.
With centuries of experiences they don't, still, see from where all the
good ideas comes from - which they later on will adopt.
for building up resources which would make an innovators successes to be
multiplied - they try do do it them self - and they more often fails - the one who
came with the idea has left the region and started something else,
had some very tuff years and being nearly "raped" by the
Swedish authorities, who despite violation of laws and rules did not change what
they had done wrong - I decided that I needed a re-start in my life. To
do so, you ought to do it fully and do it in such way that you start
everything from scratch, you cant have a your feet's left in the
"history" and than start to walk into the future - it most be
the right harmony and all what you do need to be done in the same
time-space, if you got my point.
having had a "wrong-picture" of what an Arabic country could
offer as culture, family values, relations and as a base to have the freedom
to create and have the right to be rewarded for hard work and good achievements
UAE has given me - Freedom of Creation.
